Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin University’s School of Criminal Justice and Social Sciences (CJSS) is organizing the first-ever Cold Case Camp summer program from July 17 to July 19.

This immersive program aims to introduce high school students to the various concepts and skills involved in making progress with unsolved criminal investigations. The camp will offer students an opportunity to work on both mock and real cold cases in a hands-on capacity, with Tiffin University’s CJSS faculty and experienced industry professionals leading the way.

The program is set to include several unique activities, such as a John F. Kennedy assassination case contest, the analysis of crime scene photos, witness statements, crime scene and coroners’ reports, lessons in victimology and suspectology, interactions with TU’s state-of-the-art anatomage digital autopsy table, and lessons in basic investigation and data analysis techniques.

“This camp will be a great opportunity for high school students to get an introduction to the hands-on learning exercises we provide to our Cold Case Fellowship students at Tiffin University,” said Dr. Michael Curtis, Associate Professor of Criminal Law.

The camp price is set at $595 per participant, which includes accommodation in single, air-conditioned residence halls, and meals in the Cole Dining Hall. The camp is open to 25 campers only, so early registration is encouraged.
